Elementary Matrix Operations

There are three kinds of elementary matrix operations.

  1. Interchange two rows (or columns).
  2. Multiply each element in a row (or column) by a non-zero number.
  3. Multiply a row (or column) by a non-zero number and add the result to another row (or column).

When these operations are performed on rows, they are called elementary row operations; and when they are performed on columns, they are called elementary column operations.
